Nobody, other than our God through His Word, could inspire people about the importance of prayer more than E.M. Bounds. He had an anointing upon him that gushed forth in his words and he is still a spiritual influence over a hundred years after his death. He says:
Prayer, without fervor, stakes nothing on the issue, because it has nothing to stake. It comes with empty hands. Hands, too, which are listless, as well as empty, which have never learned the lesson of clinging to the cross.
Fervorless prayer has no heart in it; it is an empty thing, an unfit vessel. Heart, soul and life, must find place in all real praying. Heaven must be made to feel the force of this crying unto God.
Prayers must be red hot. It is the fervent prayer that is effectual and that availeth.
Let's revamp our prayer lives. Let's get on our faces in fervency and cry out with souls on fire to our God. Let us not come before our God and King with empty hands and hearts, but let us come before Him with all that is within us and proceed to shake the heavens with our passion in prayer. It's time to be true prayer warriors in the kingdom of God. It's time to start seeing our prayers answered. It's time to cry out and let God move in our lives. It's time....
....the earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power
and produces wonderful results."
(James 5:16) NLT
